Having update problems took to friends house to try his internet.all i did was unplug 2 cables from the back and took it.got there and had sound but no video.took it home,got video no sound.still no...


This sounds like a connection problem. If you are not using HDMI then you can have some issue with connecting the component cables. The component cables have similar colors. Be sure to connect each one to the correct color on the TV. Be sure not to connect the two for audio into the ports for video on the TV. If you are using HDMI i would suggest while it is connected to your TV, go into settings then video settings and select a lower resolution such as 720p. Then take it to your friends house and connect via HDMI.

I took my PS3 to a friends and we used an HDMI cable to hook it to his tv and when he brought it back to my house and now it wont work, i use the red ywllow and white audio/video plugs. why wont my...


hey, when you used the HDMI cable at your friends place, the PS3 display got set to 1080p. to bring it back to standard definition (red, white, yellow wire), follow these steps.

turn off you TV and PS3

turn on your TV

With your PS3 turned off, press and hold the Power button on the front of the PS3 for about 10 seconds (the system will beep as normal as it starts up but after 7-10 seconds it will beep again). The video settings should now be reverted. Doing this will also reset any theme settings.

Now you should be able to see your PS3 menu on the TV.

Happy to help :)

My ps3 turns on but the screen is blank i have tried another hdmi cable and its the same is it broke


It depends, did you try to use it at a friends house or anytime using composite cables, maybe some how it was put on composite, which means that when you try to hook it up on hdmi it wont work, because in the settings it isn't on hdmi automatic or hdmi at all, and is on composite. If you have composite i would try that, then put tv on the right channel, and if it works, you just have to set it back to hdmi only or automatic, and hook back up by hdmi and try that, it happen's, if that doesn't work then it could be a further issue. But i would try that first.

My ps3 was working fine four days ago. I took it to my brother-in-laws two nights ago and hooked it up. We played it on his tv with an xbox hdmi cord and it was fine. I took it home and plugged it up to...


Ok you must be using a a/v cable at your house? And the hdmi cable at your brother in laws? If this is the problem its not the xbox hdmi cable. It doesnt matter all hdmi cables work the same. Its your settings. You need to hold you power button down and it should come on and beep twice then release it and a settings menu should pop up if it doesnt hold the power button down until it comes on and shuts off then hold the power button down again until it beeps twice. Hope this helps.

I have a HDMI problem with my PS3. I have it


You will need to turn on the PS3 and hook it up with rca so you can access the console menus. Turn it on and get to the main dashboard. 1. Go to Settings -> Display Settings (not video) 2. Select [ Video Output Settings ] 3. Select HDMI 4. Select Resolution 5. Select Screen Size 6. Save the settings 7. Reboot the console. This should resolve the problem. We've seen PS3 consoles that would not reset by performing a hard reset. We were able to resolve this issue through the settings menu though. Let me know if it is still giving you issues.Hank GATpro Repairs

Try entering Recovery Mode and choose "Restore Default Settings".


If that doesn't help, you may have an HDMI port failure - which will require returning the unit to Sony or sending it to a third-party PS3 repair shop.

Ps3 wont show or load games


If you originally set up the PS3 with A,V cables it won't work on HDMI even if you set it up to and visa versa. There is a work around but you will have to call tech support. Here is a link at Sony's PS3 tech support that may help also. http://playstation.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/playstation.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=263
